KD Interviews Some UNC Reject to be His Latest Scapegoat

KD is not exactly bringing in the most elite candidates to interview for the scape-goating position. The latest guy to interview for UCLA's vacant OC position is some Butch Davis reject from UNC. From Dohn (emphasis mine):

Former Fresno State and North Carolina offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti interviewed with UCLA coach Karl Dorrell about the Bruins' offensive coordinator position, sources said Wednesday.

Cignetti, who also was quarterbacks coach, was not retained by new Tar Heels coach Butch Davis.

Dorrell is trying to fill a void created when Jim Svoboda, who was UCLA's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, was fired last week.

Under Cignetti, the Tar Heels ranked 99th in scoring offense (18ppg) and 101st in total offense (293 ypg), but he had better success at Fresno State.

The 2004 Bulldogs were fifth in the nation in scoring (40.2 ppg), and in 2005 the Bulldogs were seventh in scoring (37.8 ppg).
It's not surprising to see KD bringing in some retread journeymen to interview for his OC position. Not a lot of guys out there who will want to play for a mediocre head coach who is under immense pressure to win the Pac-10, and who always looks to his coaches first to pass the blame for his underachieving offense.

Not surprising at all.
